Professor of Hebrew Bible, Hartford Seminary

B.A., New York University,
M.Div., Princeton Theological Seminary,
M.Th., Emory University,
Ph.D., The Graduate Theological Union,

Uriah Kim earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy at New York University, a Master of Divinity degree at Princeton Theological Seminary and a Master of Theology degree at Emory University before becoming an adjunct faculty member at San Francisco Theological Seminary and Pacific School of Religion from 2000 to 2004. He was also a visiting lecturer at Graduate Theological Union in Summer 2003.

Dr. Kim has a book soon to be published titled, “Decolonizing Josiah: Toward a Postcolonial Reading of Josiah, which he describes as “a passionate postcolonial reading of Josiah, that, on the one hand, critiques the failure of biblical studies to come to terms with its colonialist legacy, and, on the other hand, connects the world of biblical studies to the world at large.” His next book project will deal with David and his relationship with his God, women, men, children, and people.

In the community, Kim was pastor of English Language Ministry (Young Adults) at the Oakland Korean United Methodist Church in 2001 and 2002 and Youth Group Director at the Korean United Methodist Church of Santa Clara Valley in 2000 and 2001.

Outside work, Kim says, he is “a news junkie, spending a lot of time surfing the Internet for the latest stories on current events and to read up on whatever interests me. I am a sports fanatic and love to watch all types of sports and am excited about moving closer to ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, CT. But most of all I enjoy spending my time with my two wonderful children and lovely wife.”
